LiveU has reported it experienced 16.540 live streams during this year’s US election.
According to the company, it saw a 35 per cent increase in LiveU field unit use, while simultaneous live streams rose by 30 per cent compared to election night in 2016.
The company said LiveU Matrix was used by nearly 500 customers consuming 3,700 live feeds for distribution to local, national and global news broadcasts. The platform delivered more than 12,000 hours of video over the course of election day without interruption.
“LiveU experienced an unprecedented 16,540 live streams on election night,” said Mike Savello, LiveU VP of Sales, Americas. “This year has challenged our broadcast customers to approach live newsgathering in unique ways. The pandemic has changed studio environments, crew allocation, budgets, and workflows. What has remained consistent is LiveU’s ability to provide high-quality, flexible solutions that news organisations can rely on, especially to cover high-profile news and events.”
